Ruthie Ann Miles won the Tony Award for Featured Actress in a Musical for her moving performance as Lady Thiang in The King and I. When I saw the show back in July, her ballad “Something Wonderful,” a song that used to be just a beautiful melody to me, suddenly became clear. It’s romantic, heart-breaking, and gives meaning and dimension to an otherwise unknown backstory as Lady Thiang bares all in this vulnerable number.

Beautiful! We were fortunate to see her perform this in June, 2 days before she and Kelli O’Hara won their Tony awards. A show well worth reviving. Did you know your father was the king and I was Anna in a high school production? He really didn’t have to act that he couldn’t waltz!

It’s a beautiful production! Haha, and yes! I definitely knew that. I wish I could see a video!
